Life/Style: Flights of Fancy

Smart fashions for summer travel, wherever it is

BY May 8, 2017


If you’re a seasoned traveler, you know booking a trip is only half the equation. Next comes the wardrobe—how much to bring? How to fit it all in one suitcase? And most importantly: What are the trends for your destination? No matter where you find yourself this summer—we dream of surfing in Bali, sunning in Majorca—the right fashion will be fundamental to the occasion. Incorporate layering pieces like packable jackets and scarves with your summer essentials of printed shorts, denim pants and sunglasses. Keep shoes down to three sets: sandals, the new fashion sneaker (look for texture) and a great pair of wedges. Add in the metal for 2017, rose gold, in whatever way possible. Finally, don’t forget that summer is a time to be playful. A little sparkle and graphic print pair well with your basics, and bright color translates well to the “it” bag of the season, the mini. Oh, and for those of you who want to globetrot like Oprah herself, don’t forget your favorite portable candle. Safe travels!
